The complete-sized perfume will probably be out there within the fall, however you’ll be able to pre-order the pattern measurement now.
On Voodoo Rose…
“That is my most private perfume as a result of Voodoo Rose has been in my life for most likely 16 years. We created it years in the past—it’s been in candle kind earlier than. What I’ve completed the final 12 months and a half is made fragrances with KKW. To have my first launch alone be Voodoo Rose and have or not it’s so private for me is simply so superb.”
On the irresistible scent…
“It’s patchouli oil and it’s rose and it’s cinnamon. The center of it’s sandalwood and peppercorn and vanilla and musk. I’ve so many people who find themselves so enthusiastic about this as a result of when it was in candle kind, the celebrities I’d given it to would actually disguise the candles as a result of they have been so uncommon.
The one technique to describe it’s darkish and horny. That is the perfume you wish to placed on at night time while you wish to get mischievous—and also you need individuals to recollect what you scent like. Individuals will say they’ve by no means smelled something like this, in a great way. I feel that’s why the identify is so becoming for it. It’s truthfully like voodoo—it captures you.”
On the inspiration behind the scent…
“I’ve all the time liked a darkish rose. After we began creating Voodoo Rose, it was actually based mostly upon only a actually darkish, stunning rose, like a pink rose. I feel that’s the basic a part of it. There haven’t actually been quite a lot of fragrances on the market available on the market, for years, with a base of a deep, pink, horny rose. Rose with my different fragrances, like KKW Desert Rose, is very rose feeling, however you spray Voodoo Rose on, and also you don’t actually scent the rose in any respect.”
On his skin-care routine…
“I’ve a buddy, Melanie Griffith, she’s an actor, she was one of many unique traders in Augustinus Bader. I’m obsessive about it. That’s my skin-care routine. I put on The Face Oil ($245), then I put on The Cream ($280) after which I put on The Rich Cream ($280). I try this on a regular basis. I’m 51, are you able to inform? Everybody says, ‘You may have such shine in your pores and skin,’ and I’m like, ‘It’s not me it’s the skin-care routine.’ I don’t actually wash my face. I simply use these merchandise.”
“I’m going on walks with this man right here [gestures to his dog napping beside him]. I feel it’s tremendous vital to take time for your self. It doesn’t matter if it’s 4 instances a 12 months or a few instances a 12 months. I simply received again from Florida as a result of I simply wished to stroll on the seashore, not that we don’t have seashores in LA. I feel it’s vital to observe self-care, even when it’s sleeping in an additional half-hour. It’s all about self-care sitting exterior, having a glass of wine, and even simply taking an extended stroll than normal and placing on a few of your favourite music. These are all issues that don’t price some huge cash.”
On different fragrances…
“I’ve solely worn three fragrances my entire life. I’ve worn Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb ($118), which is clearly a ladies’s perfume however I type of made it mine. You know the way fragrances change with the chemical compounds in your physique. Lately, I’ve been carrying quite a lot of KKW Night time Iris, and I combine that with Rare Fig ($24) and Caramel Orchid ($24). When individuals hug me, they’re like ‘Oh my God, you scent so good,’ and that’s my aim.
I’m a real believer in having totally different sorts of fragrances for various instances of the day. Within the morning, you may want one thing like citrus and jasmine and gardenia to wake you up, then one thing sexier at night time.”
On why fragrances are so particular…
“Once I was approached by Scent Magnificence to do a private perfume it was very thrilling for me as a result of I’d simply been such a fan of fragrances in my life. You keep in mind a flower, and it creates a reminiscence, of your grandmother’s favourite flower, otherwise you keep in mind flowers somebody gave to you, and I feel that’s the identical reminiscence that perfume has while you scent somebody, or somebody walks in a room, otherwise you go on a date with somebody. And perfume lasts longer than a flower association. My mom, sadly, handed away a few years in the past. She wore Estée Lauder Youth-Dew ($42). I make sure that I purchase a bottle as a result of, once I scent it, it makes me consider her.”
